I've read most of the Dune novels over the years and wanted to revisit with the Audible works. Many of them have been 5 star experiences. However, a few, including this seminal novel "Dune" suffer from production excess. In particular, the multiple voicing and the inconsistent voicing of several characters detracts from an otherwise excellent reading of the book.
Great narrator! Great voice acting except two that TOTALLY don't work: Baron Vladimir and Gurney Halleck. The others are very well done.
I would not. I didn't dislike the book, but the story never gripped me. Everything was too "easy" to the protagonist, and even the story itself makes a point to make nearly all character's intentions and even the future readily apparent. It's an interesting technique, but it means there's very little tension to be had.
The production of this book is just awkward. The voice actors were excellent, but the book itself is trying to be both a full dramatization and a single-actor narration, sometimes confusingly. Long stretches are voiced by a single actor who lends his voice and varied accents to all of the characters to good effect. But then seemingly randomly it switches to only narration by that actor and dialog for characters voiced by individual actors. Two instances where this is particularly jarring are the voices for Baron Harkonnen and Stilgar. The narrator has very distinct accepts/voices for those two, and then when it switches to their individual actors, the accents/voices are extremely different. It takes you out of the story and makes for a lot of confusion unless you're listening very closely.
In addition, the producers added music and background sounds at seemingly random times. Maybe in the book there's a section/chapter break at these areas, but when listening it just sounds like music, a pause, and then picking up exactly where it was left off, in the same scene.
